History of Ornithology in Malta
7 in stock
Despite their small size, the Maltese Islands have a rich and varied ornithological history. They are of strategic value as a resting and refuelling station for millions of migratory birds crossing the sea between Europe and Africa, and these mysterious seasonal comings and goings of birds have no doubt fascinated people through the ages. This book traces all written references to bird observation and study in the Maltese Islands, and is an account of the evolution of bird study and ornithological literature in Malta, interspersed with brief biographies of human protagonists.
